Not a common sight for folks like me, who live in hotter climates.
I did once see something like this on the top of an iced bun [idea for a close-up some time in the future, Ray!!]
Is this the main street of Rome, Tracy?
Tracy: Ok Ray no need to rub it in!!!LOL
Make sure you get one with a cherry on topsmilesmile

Oh WOW, Tracy! Part of the magic is the shadows. Are you a skier? I bet you wanted to jump out of the plane!!!
Tracy: I have never been on ski's but there's always a first time. You are right though I did want to get down there and explore the surroundings.
Ginnie this was such a beautiful sight for me.smile
So you climbed out onto the wing to take this one right? Great shot!
Tracy: Yes Bill I have this hidden hobby,wing walking!!!smile

Iced bun, jump from the plane, climb on the wing - what is this world coming to. I have taken my magnifying glass to this picture, but couldn't find the pope on his ski holiday.

Great picture.
Tracy: It all adds to the fun Louis, they make me laugh which is good for the soul.smile
The Pope was getting ready for my visit.
Thanks

Took a while to work out what this was. An amazingly clear shot - I love the patches of blue that the shadows make.
Ingrid
Tracy: Thanks Ingrid I was surprised at how clear this shot had turned out.
Now *that's* what I call a view!

But snow? Honey, you ain't seen snow till you've survived 507 centimeters of the white fluffy stuff. That's how much has fallen here, In Quebe City, just this season. And there's more to come. Laughs!
Tracy: Well lady is lovely to see you back in the living world...*wink*
You have been missed.
Enjoy your snow and wrap up warm.smile
Wow! Wow! I love this kind of pictures! Lovely. For me is a Likey, Tracy!
Tracy: Jose Angel you are such a sweetie. I am so pleased you like the post.
